Middle East deal for Concrete Batching Systems
Northern Ireland-based concrete batching plant manufacturer wins £500,000 contract in Abu Dhabi
CONCRETE Batching Systems Ltd, Northern Ireland-based specialists in the design, manufacture and installation of turnkey concrete batching plants and mixing systems, are to supply two complete and fully automatic batching systems to a major precast concrete product manufacturer in Abu Dhabi in a deal worth around £500,000.
This latest export deal for the company, which will be showcasing its machinery in the Northern Ireland Pavilion (E6) at Hillhead 2012, is said to be the direct result of a focus on developing opportunities in the Middle East over the past two years.
The new customer in Abu Dhabi has ordered the two machines to manufacture concrete products for Saudi Arabia.
Concrete Batching Systems’ export focus means the Armagh-based company currently sells more than 90% of its equipment to customers outside Northern Ireland, including markets such as Libya, Africa, Sudan and Nigeria.
Bryan Irwin, sales director of Concrete Batching Systems, said: ‘Our success in the Middle East and other markets is based on our knowledge and expertise in wet and dry concrete production, which allows us to develop systems to the specific requirements of our customers.
‘We offer a total turnkey service from specification through manufacturing to installation, commissioning and maintenance with full technical support. Another key feature of our machinery is its modular design, which allows us to expand the systems for customers quickly and easily, thereby minimizing any costly downtime.
‘We believe that this flexibility and versatility gives us a competitive edge in the international marketplace.’
